TailorCrete is a four-year-long collaborative EU-funded research project aimed at integrating robotics and automation processes into the concrete construction industry. The mission is to enable the cost-effective construction of complex concrete forms.
Today, the development of emergent robotic technologies and digital design tools has situated the concrete construction industry at a critical juncture. As such, TailorCrete aims to transform the European construction sector from a material-driven industry to a knowledge-driven one. Led by the Danish Technology Institute, and funded by a multi-year grant from EU’s Seventh Framework Program, TailorCrete draws from both the public and private sectors within the EU and neighboring states. TailorCrete’s participants include: Bekaert, Chalmers, Czech Technical University, DesignToProduction, DTI, Dragados, MT Højgaard, ETH Zürich, Giben Scandinavia, Grace, Paschal, Superpool, Unicon, and Syddansk Universitet.
